Hi all,

I'm currently in the process of investigating how we might migrate our
CVSNT repository (currently on an Windows Server machine) to Subversion
or some other RCS. So far I've not had any luck at all running the usual
Subversion conversion scripts, such as cvs2svn and refinecvs, both of
which fail in their unique and individual ways. One of the main issues
I've hit is that the actual RCS files (,v) in many cases just don't seem
valid to the various scripts, so the conversion aborts or lots of files
simply don't get migrated.

Has anyone successfully migrated from CVSNT? What other revision control
systems can import repositories from CVSNT?

Many thanks,
